    Pros

    A facility that provides room for growth

    Cons

    better opportunities for employees as far as contributing more funds for employees to further their education. More assistance on the hospitals end would contribute to having more employees with a better education background.

    Pros

    Was a good hospital to work for especially for the patient population who are so appreciative of care provide by some of the medical and nursing staff. For medical training it has the best mix of patient and in all probability by the time your training is finish you will have seen 99% of all disease known to mankind

    Cons

    The Administrative staff is generally the worse because they are selected not by their qualification but by nepotism and where the Executive Director place of birth, and connection. and political affiliations such as who is the President of the HHC

    Advice to Management

    Select Administrative personnel based on the best educational qualification especially those who are trained in the medical field. This corporation is not your father's company where you select your friends and family over more qualified applicants

    Pros

    Great insurance, pension, unions etc. All the perks of having a city job.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY unfair with pay rates. Employees are undervalued and overworked. When you are working for Kings County be prepared to do the most amount of work for the least amount of pay. Kings County employees are the lowest paid throughout the entire Corporation, that speaks volumes for a facility this big.

    Advice to Management

    Stop undervaluing the workforce. Stop micromanaging the management staff. Stop baiting people in with unrealistic salary ranges, its unethical.

    Pros

    Meeting Challenges---as we know there will always be---but meeting and working with people who are not afraid to step up to the challenges when they are presented...I am grateful for the opportunity to be expose to the finest people in Health care services, who has demonstrated and conducted themselves in a comprehensive professional manner that illuminate throughout Behavioral Health Services.

    Cons

    Working with employees who have been working in the health care services for many years and feel unappreciative and taken disadvantage of...they are bitter and full of resentments which makes it very difficut to do your job in a productive and professional manner...An ongoing comprehensive mechanism needs to be in place, to conduct a diagnostic evaluation of employees that demonstrate empathy and the ability to appreciate valuable employees.

    Advice to Management

    There are exceptional employees who are not being recognized for their broad displays of professionalism, compassion and dedication of work ethics. The health care services must continue to identify and define valuable employees by enhancing on their proficiency and the servicee they provide to the people in our communities. Finally, we must offer opportunities to knowledgeable and dedicated employees for their work services.

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the work environment and good professionalism. Very nice place to start after college or entry level.

    Cons

    No room for professional growth. A place where you start at one position and you remain stuck in the same position till you end.
